Tired of Dried Out Markers, Missing Caps? No More!!!


Sick and tired of finding markers with the lids off and dried out, only to be thrown away?!! I was so sick of it that I finally retired my markers 2 years ago and only allow my students to use colored pencils and crayons now! Well thanks to "Magik Stix," markers are coming back to The Bender Bunch Classroom! 

These markers are a teacher's and parent's dream! I mean where have you been all my life!?
The seller of these, "Pencilgrip.com" guarantees these markers will not dry out with the cap off for 7 days, but that's an understatement! I tested a marker from this pack while traveling across country this past week and check out these results!

 I'm actually on Day 15 now (not pictured) and this marker, WITH NO LID, is still writing perfectly, as if it were brand new!!! Amazing! I can't wait to see just how many days I can go!! 

You can get these in sets of 12 for $9.99. That may seem a little pricey, but when I did the math and figured how much I was spending on regular markers before I retired them, the dried up markers I was throwing away, or even the ones that caps didn't get placed on tightly enough that dried up, I'll actually be saving money! Magik Stix are definitely my new "go to" marker!!! Now if they could just make these available in DRY ERASE, how awesome would that be?!!

The Pencil Grip, Inc. also has some amazing paint markers that I love! 
These paint markers are literally solid tempera paint and the best thing ever!! My students can paint with no mess, no brushes, no water, no smocks!!! :)

And it's smudge proof and dries instantly!! My students want to paint every day now with these Kwik Stix and I don't mind because they are absolutely mess free!

The "Kwik Stix" are available in primary, neon, and metallic colors and are $11.99 for a 12-pack! They also have a classroom pack available that includes 96 stix that I'm planning to purchase here

These also make excellent Christmas gifts! I just ordered for my nieces and nephews!

While shopping for my markers, I also found a great selection of pencil grips too that might be worth checking out! 



But back to these absolutely AMAZING markers and paint sticks that I'm in love with!!! The Pencil Grip, Inc. is giving away a set of "Kwik Stix" and "Magik Stix" to one of you!! Enter below to receive a set to try out with your kids!!!
